And they may. I do. Background checks ought to be vigorous. In fact, those who lie on background checks ought to have the book thrown at them. Are we? No. Why? Biden says "we don't have time." But more laws we don't enforce ought to fix the problem.

Your government at it's very finest.

What i am sorry was i being disingenous by pointing out the heritage foundation who argue for tax cuts for the rich want to do that by cutting kids hospitals... the poor old rich eh. Dammit i am going to have to change my banner too more

Words to live by right there.
Its like taking candy from a baby but oh well

2000 shoppers a day in a walmart for instance... say average spend 200 dollars so say 400000 dollars thats per day say over 6 months the length of time it took to build Romneys new place (ignoring the jobs he sent overseas of course) so maybe half a dozen builders so maybe 500000 dollars... erm not even 2 days at wallmart takings.... so who created more jobs the wallmart shoppers or Romney?

Where in the article posted did the appropriation squabble have anything to do with this? It didn't. Perhaps understand what you read before you post. Saves everybody time.

So what we need in this economy are a bunch more WalMart stores... except I thought Wal Mart jobs weren't worth having? You really should to get your talking points straight.

One individual, spending $12,000,000 to demo and build a new house... I wonder how many board feet of lumber that project will use? Copper for the plumbing, all the concrete products, the framers, roofers, plumbers, painters, cabinet makers, installers, flooring dudes, subs, general contractors, their employees, appliance makers, furniture makers, their parts and material suppliers, shippers, retailers, etc., etc., etc.

I'll bet the SoCal contractor(s) and everybody they do business with (that get that job) will be pretty damned happy Mitt didn't just keep his $12,000,000 in the Caymans.

You truly have no concept. I mentioned before you'll have to bring your "A" game to this debate or you aren't going to have anybody here to argue with. Get with the program. Last warning.

Keep in mind these are the same people who support "sanctuary cities" then complain about crime--oops, my bad, it's not crime, it's gun violence. You cannot talk about crime because that might bring up the obvious connection between crime and violence instead of putting the blame on inanimate objects.

I sure hope Obama hurries up with the next round of stimulus. We need some block grants PDQ. A bunch of other States are ganging up on us.

Quote:
Indeed, in the last five years Texas has gained 400,000 new jobs while California has lost 640,000. The Lone Star State’s rate of job growth was 33 percent higher than California’s last year, even as the Golden State finally pulled out of the recession.

Joseph Vranich, a California business-relocation expert, agrees that California has a systemic job-creation problem and says it needs to worry about more than just Texas. He says that 15 states are sending delegations to California and seeking to convince firms to relocate or, if they stay in California, to expand their operations out of state. Wealthy individuals such as golfer Phil Mickelson are openly talking about following Tiger Woods and moving to low-tax states such as Florida. EBay, Facebook, and Visa, among others, have recently made major expansions in Texas. “That kind of talk will only intensify now that top earners in California face a 13.3 percent income-tax hit on earnings over $1 million,” says Jon Fleischman, editor of the political blog FlashReport.com. “That’s not only the highest rate in the U.S. It’s the highest rate any state has had since World War II.”
Good thing we have a super majority of Liberals in the State govt. Maybe the $120 billion high speed train will get us on the right track.

Wallmart stores are magicked into existance and not built?
I was using Wallmart as an example but choose any store/business you like.

You are making some weird appeal to Says law that supply = demand.
